Berlin, Oct 5 (Reuters) - Chancellor Olaf Scholz insists on the construction of the gas pipeline desired by Spain and Germany. "The European Union has to network even more in terms of energy supply," Scholz said on Wednesday in an interview with the Spanish newspaper "El Pais" in front of the German-Spanish government consultations. "In particular, the connection of the Iberian Peninsula to the European Pipeline network would be a very important step for all of us, so I advertise Midcat's construction," emphasized the Chancellor. France's President Emmanuel Macron has so far rejected the construction of the pipeline, also because he fears competition for the French nuclear power plants and LNG terminals. Portugal and Spain have several LNG terminals, which can be used to land. In the future, however, the Midcat pipeline will also bring hydrogen to Central Europe.

In summer, the federal government presented its ideas of a limited further development of European debt rules.
Scholz initially meets Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez in A Coruna in northwestern Spain on Wednesday night afternoon in A Coruna. The Chancellor is accompanied by Vice Chancellor Robert Habeck, Finance Minister Christian Lindner, Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock and Defense Minister Christine Lambrecht, among others.
